Ovechkin Listed Week-To-Week, Simon Gagne out 6-8 weeks, and other NHL related going-ons.

Corey Masisak of the Washington Post is reporting the Capitals have said Ovechkin has been listed week-to-week, initially everyone thought he'd be day-to-day at worst, but apparently the upper body strain Ovi suffered on Sunday against the Blue Jackets is enough to make him miss more games than we thought.

This is a blow to the Capitals who have been looking like a different team lately, and taking Ovi's stick out of the line up isn't going to help them get back to their winning ways. All is not lost, however, Ovechkin is a freakish human being and I'd be surprised if he's out for more than one week, actually, although I don't know the severity of the injury, Ovechkin isn't the type of player to be sidelined for a long time, so we'll see what happens with that.

Meanwhile, Simon Gagne of the Philadelphia Flyers has been sidelined for 6-8 weeks, from what I understand he's getting surgery to have not one, but two hernias repaired and needs that time to recover. If you have Gagne on your fantasy team, like yours truly, expect a December-January return, and who knows how he'll do when he gets back, I think I'll hold on to him unless someone surprises everyone and has the season of his career that happens to still be available.

Tom Renney, assistant coach for the Edmonton Oilers, had a conversation with Newsday's Islander corespondent Katie Strang and apparently said the Isles are a playoff bound team:
"It was fits and starts getting the job done. Scott came in here with a really good game plan and structure and a way he wanted to get things done. Last year you saw the beginning of that and at the front end of this year--where guys were still trying to get in line with it--but now it’s corrected itself and I think they’re an excellent team. I think they’re a playoff team.”
Now I'm not sure of Renney is drinking the same Kool-Aid he did when he thought the Rangers he was coaching last year were Stanley Cup-bound using his system, but hey, whatever's clever.

Speaking of the Oilers, they skate vs. the aforementioned Islanders tonight at Nassau Coliseum, Isles are coming off a 3 game win streak which saw them down the Rangers, Capitals, and Sabres, whereas the Oilers have lost 4 of their last 5.

Philly Flyers and Tampa Bay are currently in action, at the time of this, the Flyers are up 5-1 in the 2nd with 8:15 to go. That game was moved up for tonight's game 5 match up between the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees, NY leads the series 3-1, opening pitch is at 7:57. The other game happening tonight is a west coast clash between the Phoenix Coyotes and the LA Kings, Shane Doan is going to start after being destroyed against the Ducks, speaking of which, James Wisniewski received a suspension for that elbow to Doan's face, and he earned it, I'd not be surprised to see Jeremy post his further thoughts on it later on, so I won't go into too much detail there.

ESPN released their week 6 power rankings, I usually look at them for fun and not for real analysis, ESPN is lacking on hockey, and every other sport, but that's neither here nor there. They have the Penguins at number one right now, rightfully so, they have the best record in the league. Some peculiar things though is the Devils ranked at number 8 while winning I think a total of 1 game at home, while the Islanders were ranked at 20, with one home win, and they made that the reason they weren't higher. Again, ESPN can't be taken seriously, but you can look at their list here.

Also, the NHL schedule is finally picking up, it was skimpy the first few weeks, so I think there should be more wiggle room in the coming weeks, and I'd not be surprised to see teams finally decide on their lines they'll probably use for a majority of the season, this is the first week where there's multiple games every single night, and that's something to be excited about.
